    I am currently on my way to Nepal for a shoot in the Himalayers for the BBC so its is quite lucky I received your email now, as I will not be contactable for the next couple of weeks. I am definitely interested in your job and it sounds like something that is right up my street. I will be in Nepal until the 3rd of May, but I will give you a call as soon as I return if you still require a Camera operator. If you would like to see any samples of my work, credits and rates you can
    visit my website at
    I look forward to speaking to you upon my return.
    Regards, Stuart

    contact – they specialize in adventure/extreme filming and have a database of relevant crew members. I’m a member on there myself and would love to take this opportunity but as yet have not filmed mountaineering although I’d love to. I’m also fully booked until mid June so I’m not sure if your shoot is before then anyway. Check out the site though, good luck with your project.

    Very best wishes


    Lee York – Cameraman.

    Dear Anne Marie
